"At Corru Gate we discovered everything that we most enjoy about holiday accommodation; peace and privacy in the lovely courtyard and strolling through the property. We loved all the cool creative arty touches as well as the contemporary design of the cottage. Enjoyed the bath and very efficient “pot belly” – really cozy at night! You are at the perfect location in Nelson - so close to beaches, wineries and EVERYTHING! Thanks." G, M and P Wellington.

A little slice of paradise. Our family of three generations all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Corru Gate. Well equipped, clean and comfortable in serene surroundings. Close to beautiful beaches, great cafes and restaurants, so everyone gets what they want. Perfect spot for kids - let them loose in the orchard or down at the frog pond and you won't see them for hours! Roger and Adele are perfect hosts, helpful and obliging but respectful of your privacy at the same time. Thanks so much - I hope we will return soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at Corru Gate. It's location is excellent as both the Abel Tasman and Nelson are about half an hour away and the local village of Mapua has live music at least once a week, which is free! The bach is very well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the children loved the trampoline! Thanks.

We stayed at Corru Gate in spring 2011 on our post-earthquake travels. It is a delightful small bach in sheltered, natural surrounds. Roger was very welcoming. A wonderful base to explore Mapua and the wider area and a great place to relax.

Corru Gate rocks! We have loved every minute of our stay in Mapua and what an amazing little piece of paradise you have created here at Corru Gate! We really don't want to leave. :-( This has been a terrific base for our stay in the wider Nelson region, making day trips to Kaiteriteri, Motueka, Richmond, Nelson City etc - only a stone's throw away. Mapua Village is so gorgeous. Fab shops! Thanks Roger for all the very helpful information before and during our stay - much appreciated. We've enjoyed the potbelly. Thanks very much. Cheers - Dan, Melissa, Thomas, and Charlotte
